Subject: [RFC PATCH] timekeeping: Avoid undefined behaviour in 'ktime_get_with_offset()'

When I ran Syzkaller testsuite, I got the following call trace.

It it because global variable 'offsets' is set with a very large but still
valid value. It overflows when we add 'tk->tkr_mono.base' with 'offsets'.

Because 'ktime_get_with_offset()' is a frequently used function, it may
effect the performance if we use 'ktime_add_safe()' to avoid this
undefined behaviour, so we use 'ktime_add_unsafe()' instead.
